Want to make a positive difference to the tamariki in primary and intermediate schools in Tāmaki Makaurau? 

As part of a new initiative known as Healthy Active Learning, we are looking to recruit a healthy active learning advisor who will work directly with selected primary and intermediate schools within Central Auckland. This role is critical to Healthy Active Learning, a new joint initiative between Sport New Zealand and the Ministries of Health and Education to improve child and youth wellbeing through healthy eating and drinking and quality physical activity.

Healthy active learning advisors will work with Boards of Trustees, principals, senior leaders and teachers of primary and intermediate schools to provide advice and customised support. This will enable schools to strategise, plan and develop systems that contribute to the development of an active and healthy school culture.

As a healthy active learning advisor, you will have the following attributes and skills:

  • Knowledge and understanding of the New Zealand Curriculum and/or Te Marautanga o Aotearoa
  • Extensive knowledge of the health and physical education curriculum with practical delivery experience
  • Knowledge of the systems, structures and operating models that underpin the education, sport, active recreation and play sectors across Aotearoa
  • Knowledge and understanding of how the sport and education sectors interact to deliver PE, sport, active recreation and play opportunities for tamariki
  • Experience in leading change in the school setting and influencing at different levels (Boards of Trustees, management, teachers, parents)
  • Excellent communication and strong relationship building skills. 

This role will involve working at various locations within the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki area and require the ability to be flexible with work hours.

If you’re an organised, quick learner with education sector experience, and keen to join a fun, hardworking team committed to making a positive difference, then we’d like to hear from you.

Please note, we are recruiting for Sport Auckland – 1 advisor role.
